Would You Ride The Night Train To Chechnya?

  • Published: 05 November 2019
  • 🇷🇺 I decided to head south to the snowy peaks of the Caucasus that divide Europe from Asia. But before I could board my train to Grozny, the capital of Chechnya, I had to work out what exactly a bloody 'put and platform' is. Fortunately a one legged local helped me...Yes I'm back in Russia!

            That one legged local seems like he would have some crazy interesting stories, he seems friendly enough to sit down and chat with, over a JD apparently.

                              You may not be writing a novel with a quill, but your words have clearly left their mark on everyone you meet. You’re the rare kind of traveler, the type of person who no one forgets after meeting. Thanks for sharing your adventures. Makes me want to run away again on another big adventure.

                                  Mr. Bald is so facile speaking Russian that I find strange that he has trouble with путь and платформа. Платформа = platform, путь = track. Platform is the thing you stand on, and the track is what the train is on. For example, you would first go to the correct platform, say platform 5 and on your left could be track 9 and on your right track 10. Find the correct platform then the correct track.

                                        And people hate Russia for no real reason. I am an Indian and Russians are our brothers......India and Indians will always side with Russia against the north american countries and the entirety of Europe...not that they need it but they have us as brothers either way. Long live mother Russia!!

When you have a long train that gets split up halfway, you know you're in the right section and don't have to get out then. That's not russian, that just organised. I am sure most countries have that.
